My wife and I saw it last night in a park on the North side of Milwaukee, despite the city light pollution. She had never seen a comet before. This is the best one I have seen (Khoutek and Hale-Bopp). Found with binoculars but visible to the eye. In the next couple days we'll drive out into the country and take the small refractor.
It's pretty cool, and comets this bright only come about 2 times per lifetime!
